The Sharp Lads (Brooklyn, NY) Impossible riffs. Obscene showmanship. An ass-groovin’ rhythm section. New punk songs with catchy melodies, the likes of which you never thought you’d hear again. The Sharp Lads released their debut album in the summer of 2011, and unleashed a campaign of live rock n’ roll shock and awe, unlike anything the world had ever witnessed before. And now they’re back! Taking lessons learned on their home turf of NYC and on the road everywhere else they could, playing to crowds of sweaty loyalists and stunned new converts alike, with no concern for their own personal safety or worries about anything other than the moment, the Lads have emerged from their experiences with Death by Misadventure, their second album released Spring 2014. Dave Tierney leads the charge with schizo vocals alternating between desperate screams and genre bending melodies. Rob Fudge shreds alien riffs that make you feel like your first time all over again while Kurt Wahlstrom holds down the bowel shaking bottom end playing a bass carved from a Jamaican treehouse. Driving the beat like a hell spawned hot rod with its brake lines cut, Steve Dios is blasting these songs with a frightening fury all the way to their grisly finish. Surrender your sons and daughters. It’s already too late. Refinery Coast (Houston, TX) Punk/Ska from the Dirty Gulf Coast! Haksaw Man (Houston, TX) The story of Haksaw Man is a strange one. It all began with too many beers, when the Wolf asked Buck Velvet what if…? What if Leather face slung a guitar as well as he slung a chainsaw? What if a werewolf could play drums? What if Frankenstein played bass? Well, in early 2010 Buck Velvet and The Wolf started Haksaw Man. They began writing songs with a love for horror movies, Texas, and rock-n-roll. But the boys needed someone on bass to round out the trio.and, as luck would have it, an old friend, Little George came back to town. Before long Haksaw Man was taking their music to the darkest, seediest bars, and beer joints in Texas. And, every time they played they were a little louder, rocked a little harder, and were making people howl at the moon. The boys aren’t fond of being called, well, anything. But some have called them garage-rock, blues-rock, surf-rock, punk-rock, rock-a-billy, and a host of other things not fit to repeat. Well, the boys figure they might as well name their music after two of the things they love. The things that started started all this… Horror Rock.
